Everything we do at Day Early Learning is aimed at nurturing each child’s social, emotional and educational needs. Our ultimate goal is not only to prepare your child for kindergarten, but also to inspire a lifelong learning journey. Well-educated and trained teachers ensure that your child will be in the best hands possible.

Here is your chance to get to know some of our Day Early Learning team members. This week, we highlight Alexis Johnson.

Which Day Early Learning center do you work at?
Center for Infants & Toddlers.

What age group do you teach?
I am in a toddler classroom.

How long have you worked at Day Early Learning?
I have been at Day Early Learning for about two years.

When did you know you wanted to work with children?
I grew up babysitting my three younger siblings and other younger family members alongside my eldest sister. I fell in love with the creativity and genuine kindness children always seemed to have. My professional focus is to find impactful and meaningful work to fulfill, and I have discovered that here at Day Early Learning.

How do you like to spend your free time?
I love weightlifting, rock climbing, ziplining and reading!

What is/was your favorite children’s book?
The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle.

What was the last moment that caused you to stop and remember why you love teaching and working with children?
Every morning reminds me of why I love working with children. Getting run over by hugs and smiles before I even sit my bags down, and getting to witness how they problem-solve together to help one another regulate their emotions (giving a hug, rubbing their back while shushing them, etc.).

What is your favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning?
My favorite thing about working at Day Early Learning are the relationships I’ve created both inside and outside of work with my fellow staff members.
